wrong version of redhat


Hi,
I was looking desperatly for iso files of an OS which is based on kernel 2.4.x. Finally I managed to get some kind of version of redhat (ws3), but when I try to install it I get the error: "Your CPU does not support long mode. Use a 32bit distribution".
Is there anything I can do? Does anyone know where I can download a complete OS which is based on kernel v2.4.X?

www.distrowatch.com can help you out immensely. Sounds like you downloaded a 64-bit version by mistake.

Yeah you're right - I'd complain if I were you.

Of course, you could always install the linux of your choice and then install a 2.4 kernel from www.kernel.org 2.4.32 is the latest I think.

It strikes me to ask - why you want a 2.4.x ?

BTW: if you list your location in your profile (see mine?), someone may volunteer to post you a disk?

Debian Sarge, the current stable Debian release, comes with 2.4 and 2.6 kernels.

You select which one you want during installation.

Not only that, but using apt to install new kernels is a snap.

I'm trying to write a piece of code which involves kernel programming, and it's far too complicated with v2.6...
